Award-winning author Stephen Hinman came into the world a hopeful wanderer, a ponderer of life, and a storyteller.  After careers as an English teacher and coach, athletic club director, business owner, and physical therapist, Stephen made his way back to his early roots as a writer and poet. 


Recently, he found a kindred spirit in his adopted cattle dog.  Durango Pete, who has ancient wisdom, the gift of gab, and love of life, became Stephen’s constant companion.


Stephen has 3 children and 5 grandchildren. He, Durango Pete, and his wife, Cynthia, split time between homes in Denver and Grand Lake, Colorado, where they frequent prairie and mountain trails and Stephen continues to write.
